Nærkamp is a comic strip adaptation of the prizewinning novel Fittekvote by Axel Hellstenius and Morten Skårdal. Fittekvote won Uprisen in 2011.
Cadet 2010 Bakke, Victoria quickly realises that military academy is quite different to the hairdressers back home. She tests her own limits both physically and mentally, not least because her relationship with her boyfriend must be kept secret. Is she really willing to sign a contract to be sent to war to fight for her country?
This is the tough, realistic, warm, crude, funny and tragic story of a young girl's reality in the Norwegian armed forces. Nærkamp shows that it is still challenging to be a girl in a primarily male environment while also painting a realistic picture of today's armed forced.
Line Halsnes debuts as a comic strip creator with this book.
